Paying profit on a loan

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have an interest loan which is fixed interest car loan. However i need a car for work and i am a salesman. I know this loan is haraam. I have asked family and friends to give me a loan but failed. Now I’m stuck with this loan and i would like to find out is there any place where i can get a sharia loan as i hate to be in interest. Please help as i have no barkat and i can pay any muslim willing to help me a profit rather than being in interest.


A: Paying profit on a loan taken is in actual fact interest.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
